Ouch! I\'m now out of it for 12-14 weeks

While at work the other day and lifted a 80lb box and it felt like somebody ripped my arm in half at the elbow. Went to the ER and they told me that I "sprained" it. They put it in a half cast and said it would be okay in a couple of weeks.
So a week later when doing a follow-up with my Dr. I got the bad news! I had ripped the Bisep Tendon (the point where your bisep attaches to your forarm) off the bone. He scheduled me for surgey the next morning. Next morning when I come to he tells me that I won't be riding for 8-10 weeks and not back to 100% for 12-14 weeks. I'm telling you my life sucks! Well I guess the bike gets pulled apart agian! Thats aways been the best physical therapy I could find! I just wonder what it will look like this time? I have aways liked the Lucky Strike Paint job....

Man, I knoe that had to hurt. Make sure you do your rehab and stick to their plan. The harder you work the quicker you will be back at 100%.
Get well and get riding

Sounds like you'll be making the best of your time, though

Man, thats sucks. I tore the tendon in my ankle from crashing my dirtbike. Doc said not to ride for 12 weeks, i was ridin all over with a cast on my foot. I even raced at the dragstrip after my cast was off, before the 12 weeks was up. Be a little harder with your arm though.
